Cadre produces cold climate white wines in the Edna Valley. SIP Certified Sustainable this Albarino comes from a single vineyard and is an Albarino-lovers' Albarino with bright spicy citrus, orange blossom and salinity (read my post on salt in wine!). I love the acidity and brightness of this wine and how it's balanced by a roundness and complexity from a long hang time on the vine.
- Varietal/Type: 100% Albarino
- Vineyard: Paragon, SIP certified sustainable vineyard
- Tasting Notes: On the nose, this wine bursts with spicy citrus and salty zest. There is a seductive orange blossom aspect paired subtle banana and cardamom notes. You can definitely smell the sea influence on this wine as there are briny notes that speak to the nearby Pacific Ocean. White flower notes are ever so present, but salty tangy citrus is the driver. On the palate, this wine is full of tang and energy.
- Pairing Recommendations: Creamy pastas and seafood. Or be like me, and enjoy it by the glass without any food!
